Enhanced Response Areas

Enhanced Response Areas

The Government is deploying extra support in local areas receiving an enhanced response package to address increases in COVID-19.

In this phase of continued caution while managing the risks of COVID-19, the Government continues to work with local authorities. The Government, informed by the data, such as case rate growth, and local insights, provides national support to local areas which need an enhanced response to ensure there is no danger of the NHS facing unsustainable pressure.

The support is provided for a 5-week period, and includes the option to deliver extra testing within targeted areas, the provision of logistical support to maximise vaccine uptake, and further help for local campaigns.

Assets are available for use by Local Authorities in Enhanced Response Area to supplement centrally founded communications
